Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
San Francisco 49ers
An emergency 6 pack of suggestions for improving the New York Jets who remain in the thick of the AFC wild-card race.
1. No More Mulligan – Matthew Mulligan should not be playing 20 snaps a game in a NFL offense. He shouldn’t be playing 5 snaps a game in a NFL offense. If you decide your number two tight end is going to be such a big part of your offense, you have to make a better investment at the position. How about giving recently signed Shawn Nelson a chance?
2. More and More Pool – When he gets back to being healthy, it is time to take large chunks of playing time away from Eric Smith and give it to Brodney Pool, than in the off-season the Jets must draft or sign an athletic safety with some height. Time to react to New England having two monsters at tight end.
3. Pick A Punt Returner – First you had Jeremy Kerley deep, then you had Jim Leonhard, then you switched to Joe McKnight back deep who proceeded to **** a punt. I love McKnight as a kick returner but he has looked shaky...

On responding to the loss…
The good thing is the game is coming fast. You have no choice, really, then to put the last game behind you and move on. So, for us, we have a big challenge against us. Obviously, we’ve got to travel way across country and then you’re playing against a team that’s not normal, (compared to) what other teams...
You couldn't swing a dead cat this summer without hitting someone telling you that it was imperative that Mark Sanchez showed marked improvement as a quarterback this season. Because of that we thought we'd check in weekly to see how the Sanchize is progressing toward that goal.
On the first drive of Sunday night's game against the Patriots, it looked like we would...
The Jets' last loss was to the Patriots. The Patriots have won only one game since then. Here's what each team must do to avoid losing the mutual hatefest this Sunday:
Time isn't on the side of the Jets, and the latest signs point toward running back LaDainian Tomlinson sitting out Thursday night's game in Denver.
The New York Jets are looking for reasons why they couldn't put together a solid effort against a Patriots team ranked dead last in defense.
Pool, Nelson not on the field
The NFL is looking into an Internet video that appears to show New York Jets coach Rex Ryan using an obscenity while angrily responding to a fan after the team's 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says Monday that the league is aware of the 48-second video, which shows the Jets walking off the field Sunday night.
It's been barely a month since the New York Jets suffered a third straight loss - at the hands of their archrival, no less
- and had their playoff hopes widely called into question.
Running back LaDainian Tomlinson will have an MRI on his left leg Monday after suffering an injury late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Patriots.
The New York Times’ Fifth Down blog answers readers’ questions, weighing in on Sanchez’s leadership abilities compared to other quarterbacks:
Manning, Rivers, Brees and Rodgers did not start immediately as rookies. Eli Manning started later in his rookie season. Stafford has been hurt often so we haven’t had enough complete seasons to look. Flacco and Roethlisberger started...
The Jets got the game they'd been waiting for on Sunday night.
They rode a three-game winning streak into a home game for first place in the AFC East against a reeling Patriots team coming off of two losses with a defense that hasn't been able to stop anyone. It was exactly the moment the Jets have dreamed about, a chance to drive a stake into the heart of their hated rivals...
